Neftci Baku vs. Dinamo Tiflis tip - Champions League qualification
- Title : Neftci Baku vs. Dinamo Tiflis tip - Champions League qualification
After the football highlight of this year, the Euro Championship, it is now time to focus on the upcoming league starts in the individual countries.
The associations will gradually start playing in the next few weeks.
In this early phase of the football year, the first teams start qualifying for international competitions and do their best to secure their share of the richly filled pots of money. In the round of 16 of the Champions League Quali, two teams meet, which celebrate great successes nationally, but tend to fly under the radar internationally.
Neither the Azerbaijanis nor the Georgians have so far qualified for the group stage of a Champions League. After the 2-1 first leg success of the black and whites at Dinamo, all the bookmakers' predictions in the game Neftci Baku against Dinamo Tbilisi go towards the hosts. With Olympiacos Piraeus, there is no heavyweight in international football waiting in the next round, so the qualification semi-finals are quite possible.
The kick-off in the Bakcell Arena in Baku will sound on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m. and a failure of the hosts in their own stadium would be a big surprise.
Neftci Baku - statistics & current form
With Neftci Baku, the reigning champions of the Azerbaijani Premyer Liqasi are preparing to move into the quarter-finals of the Champions League qualification. A team from Azerbaijan has never managed to qualify for the group stage of the European Bel Etage.
In recent years, the black and whites have repeatedly tried to qualify for the group games in the Europa League, but mostly failed in the qualifying games. Last year the end came in the second round with a 3-1 defeat at Galatasaray Istanbul.
Baku with the best prospects for advancement
The Neftjanik celebrated their greatest success in 2012 when they made their only jump into the group stage. This year should now be the big hit if possible. At least the signs for surviving the round of 16 are excellent. The 2-1 first leg success in Georgia gave the team of coach Samir Abbasov a brilliant starting position.
And that although his men, unlike the Georgians, are still in the preparation phase for the new season. But the test matches already indicated an increasing form curve. After a draw against Ljubljana and a defeat against Domzale, there was a 2-1 win against Spartak Moscow.
